  1. ncbi Widespread origins of domestic horse lineages
    C Vila
    Department of Evolutionary Biology, Uppsala University, Norbyvagen 18D, S 75236 Uppsala, Sweden
    Science 291:474-7. 2001
    ..However, genetic variation at nuclear markers is partitioned among horse breeds and may reflect sex-biased dispersal and breeding...
  2. ncbi Genes of domestic mammals augmented by backcrossing with wild ancestors
    Carles Vila
    Department of Evolutionary Biology, Uppsala University, Norbyvagen 18D, 752 36 Uppsala, Sweden
    Trends Genet 21:214-8. 2005
    ..These results support the view that, contrary to common assumption, domestic and wild lineages might not have been clearly separated throughout their history...
  3. ncbi Combined use of maternal, paternal and bi-parental genetic markers for the identification of wolf-dog hybrids
    C Vila
    Department of Evolutionary Biology, Uppsala University, Sweden
    Heredity (Edinb) 90:17-24. 2003
    ..This finding confirms that inter-specific hybridization between wolves and dogs can occur in natural wolf populations. A possible correlation between hybridization and wolf population density and disturbance deserves further research...
  4. ncbi From wild wolf to domestic dog: gene expression changes in the brain
    Peter Saetre
    Department of Evolution, Genomics and Systematics, Uppsala University, Norbyvagen 18D, S 752 36 Uppsala, Sweden
    Brain Res Mol Brain Res 126:198-206. 2004
    ..Instead, they may provide a common mechanism for rapid adaptive changes during speciation, particularly in cases that present strong selective pressures on behavioral characters...

    Carles Vila
    Department of Evolutionary Biology, Evolutionary Biology Centre, Uppsala University, Norbyvagen 18D, SE 752 36 Uppsala, Sweden
    Proc Biol Sci 270:91-7. 2003
    ..Our results imply that even rare interpopulation migration can lead to the rescue and recovery of isolated and endangered natural populations...
  6. pmc Relaxation of selective constraint on dog mitochondrial DNA following domestication
    Susanne Björnerfeldt
    Department of Evolutionary Biology, Uppsala University, SE 752 36 Uppsala, Sweden
    Genome Res 16:990-4. 2006
    ..This diversity could thus have contributed raw material upon which artificial selection has shaped modern breeds and may therefore be an important source of the extreme phenotypic variation present in modern-day dogs...
  7. pmc Barking up the wrong tree: modern northern European dogs fail to explain their origin
    Helena Malmström
    Department of Evolutionary Biology, Uppsala University, SE 752 36 Uppsala, Sweden
    BMC Evol Biol 8:71. 2008
    ..This has been suggested to indicate a possible origin of the haplogroup (perhaps even a separate domestication) in central or northern Europe...
  8. ncbi Limited number of patrilines in horse domestication
    Gabriella Lindgren
    Department of Evolutionary Biology, Evolutionary Biology Centre, Uppsala University, Norbyvagen 18D, SE 752 36 Uppsala, Sweden
    Nat Genet 36:335-6. 2004
    ..These observations are consistent with a strong sex-bias in the domestication process, with few stallions contributing genetically to the domestic horse...

    Susanne Björnerfeldt
    Department of Evolutionary Biology, Uppsala University, S 752 36 Uppsala, Sweden
    BMC Evol Biol 8:28. 2008
    ..However, genetic uniformity within breeds may not always be the case. We studied patterns of genetic diversity within 164 poodles and compared it to 133 dogs from eight other breeds...
  12. pmc Vanishing native American dog lineages
    Santiago Castroviejo-Fisher
    Department of Evolutionary Biology, Uppsala University, 75236 Uppsala, Sweden
    BMC Evol Biol 11:73. 2011
    ..Although previous ancient DNA studies revealed the existence of unique native American mitochondrial sequences, these have not been found in modern dogs, mainly purebred, studied so far...
